This specification covers a common aluminum fitting that may be used for a range of operating pressures up to 1500 psi with different tubing materials and tubing wall thicknesses, and is assembled with the same tooling in accordance with AS6124. Table 12 shows applicable aerospace fitting part number standard and tubing materials and operating pressures.
If any of the above conditions do not apply, refer to Section 2.
The procedure recommended herein is based on experience gathered by a number of laboratories conducting component qualification tests to MIL-E-5009, currently MIL-E-5007. It is intended to produce a uniform reproducible steady state test condition for fuel pump cavitation testing as required by various military engine specifications.
This test is not intended to establish altitude or climb rate, starting, or other transient performance of the article tested.
